Make "green" the new red this Valentine's Day. Show love for the planet by altering some traditional activities, making February a greener, more eco-friendly month. For example, Jodi Helmer, author of The Green Year, suggests:

? ordering organic roses for your Valentine, grown without pesticides or preservatives;

? surprising your Valentine with a candle lit dinner, turning the lights out saves energy;

? toasting your Valentine with organic wine produced locally (they travel the shortest distance from vineyard to table);



? snapping photographs of your Valentine with a digital camera, print your favorite images and store the rest electronically;

? onsidering the purchase of a piece of estate jewelry, the ultimate in reducing, reusing and recycling.
